Pet Women Weekly – Do You Want to be Remembered?

 Dear Pet Lover,

What is Memorial Day For?

 

This coming weekend most of us, in America will be enjoying a 3 day holiday. And it’s interesting to me that most of us don’t know or care why. So that got me thinking and Googling…

Here’s some info you might find as interesting as I did:

 Memorial Day

It is traditional to fly the flag of the United States at half-staff from dawn until noon. Many people visit cemeteries and memorials, particularly to honor those who have died in military service. Many volunteers place an American flag on each grave in national cemeteries. Memorial Day is combined with Jefferson Davis’ Birthday in Mississippi.

Memorial Day has become less of an occasion of remembrance. Many people choose to hold picnics, sports events and family gatherings on this weekend. This day is traditionally seen as the start of the summer season for cultural events. For the fashion conscious, it is seen as acceptable to wear white clothing, particularly shoes from Memorial Day until Labor Day. However, fewer and fewer people follow this rule and many wear white clothing throughout the year.

So that explains my mother’s insistence on no white prior to June! What it also explains is how we’ve taken a day that was set aside to REMEMBER those brave souls fallen in battle, to a long weekend to kick off summer.

 Is this a bad thing?

This would be for you and your family to decide. I do think that most of our youth are unaware of some things our parents and grandparents held very dear. Like memorial day.

So, this post is not an admonishment to you, it’s not a call to action either.

I hope it’s both informational and question forming.

Do I want to share what this day was really set aside for?

Is there someone in my life I want to honor and remember this coming Monday?

Do I want to be remembered after I’m gone? If so how?

Regardless of your answers, I wish for you a weekend that reminds you how free we are in America to do as we please and that many many souls died for that freedom. Cemeteries all over this nation will fly flags honoring those souls and for that I am glad.

Blessings, Shawna

Dear Pet Lover,

Question everything?

 What is your intention for the week?

Ask yourself…

Are you asking yourself good questions?

Do the questions you ask – begin with how or why? (How is better.)

“It is not every question which deserves an answer.”

Pet Women Weekly – Will You Practice Self-Restraint?

Dear Pet Lover,

It’s a Temperance Week!


We are embarking on Benjamin Franklin’s 13 Virtues for the accountability group I lead, Monday through Friday at 5:15 AM – yes, you read that right, 5:15 AM.

One reason these leaders get up so early is because they seek to accomplish more, become more, experience more than they did before. It works, and has been working for the 10 years I’ve been leading it.

Each year we follow Benjamin Franklin and do 13 weeks of his virtues. I thought I’d extend it out to you as well. Though you won’t have the benefit of daily reflection (though please do that on your own) you can benefit from exposure to what Ben thought a person needed in which to live a fully realized and wonderful life.

Some of the words are old-fashioned but all of them stand the test of time.

The first one is: Temperance

The meaning of temperance is: moderation or self-restraint, especially in eating and drinking

Think about that for a moment.

How much better we would be if we showed temperance. Yes, in our eating and drinking but if we also showed this is our business dealings.

Temperance in judging others – especially our customers, competitors and team.

Temperance in spending – so we kept expenses in line with our budgets and goals.

Temperance in consuming media – and only allowed into our minds the very best information and not what the media pushes so relentlessly upon us.

What if, you practiced temperance the rest of this week? What might that do for your business?

Let me know how it goes!

Blessings, Shawna

Pet Women Weekly – You are a Gift! So Let Me Give You One!

Giving to You Makes Me Happy!

 

The day a person is born is a day for celebration. The woman who labored to bring this life forth. The man who provided the seed, the family that welcomes and loves the new addition – celebration! And the infant knows nothing of it.

Later that “birth day” – becomes their celebration. They turn another year older, have traversed the world for an additional 365 days, hopefully provided value or love to others.

And they get gifts.

 Gifts and cake are two very fun things about birthdays I think.

 Now, however, as I’m adding numbers up, gifts mean something different. Cake, though – that is a constant delight!

 For me now, the gifts I most relish are not things, they are people, experiences, pleasures.

 YOU are a gift – being in my circle, reading my words, commenting, sharing, encouraging. Thank you for that!

 Now I want to give you a gift. It’s a task actually, that as you do it will make the world a better place and also help you have the best day of your life.

 Ready? Here is the gift:

For the rest of this day, no matter who you meet or talk to, tell that person: “YOU are Important!”

When you do this you will be sprinkling magic out that will have remarkable effects.

You are important to this business

You are important to this company

You are doing important work

You are important to the world

You are important to others

You are important to this organization

You are important to the community

You are important to this family

You are important to me

Because it’s true.

People, however, need to hear it and you are just the person to share it.

Please use this gift to have the best day ever and let me know how it goes for you. That will be the best birthday gift I could receive.

Thank you, I’m off to eat cake!

Oh – Happy St. Paddys Day too!

Blessings, Shawna

Monday Mindset: Start your week off well! Are you an action taker?

Dear Pet Lover,

Are you an action taker?

Pet Women Weekly – What if you couldn’t make Priority plural?

Dear Pet Lover,

What if you couldn’t make Priority plural?

 

Helping entrepreneurs and leaders excel is my business. It’s the greatest gift and most thrilling thing I’ve ever done and I am blessed with the most exceptional clients in the universe.

And most everyone dances around how to set their priorities.

One way that can help them, and you is this: What if you didn’t make the word priority plural?

What if, you only had ONE priority? One highest best goal, or task that you put your full focus on?

Definition:

noun

1. the fact or condition of being regarded or treated as more important.

2. “”the safety of the country takes priority over any other matter” – prime concern, most important consideration, primary issue.

One thing –

I challenge you to think about that today as you review your tasks – what are the items that will move your forward fastest to your ONE or TOP priority?

Sometimes when we have too much on our list – we do most of it less than stellar.

Work towards your ONE TOP thing – and let me know how it goes!

Believe in you!

Blessings, Shawna

Pet Women Weekly – Do you have a mind like water?

Dear Pet Lover,

Do you have a mind like water?

 

In karate, there is something called “mind like water” – which implies being in perfect readiness.

David Allen in his fine book, “Getting Things Done” describes this process like this:

“Imagine throwing a pebble into a still pond. How does the water respond? The answer is, totally appropriately to the force and mass of the input; then it returns to calm. It doesn’t overeat or underreact.”

Allen goes on to say a bit later, “Anything that causes you to overreact or underreact can control you, and often does. Responding inappropriately to your email, your staff, your projects, your unread magazines, your thoughts about what you need to do, your children, or your boss will lead to less effective results than you’d like. Most people give either more or less attention to things than they deserve, simply because they don’t operate with a “mind like water.”

(David Allen, Penguin books p11)

This to me is a fabulous reminder to be in the present – as I suggest every day to those on my 5:15 AM accountability call – when we are present – our minds can be more like water.  Ready to receive appropriately what comes our way. Also – using our mind to know that we will react in a right manner is also key, which we have been discussing since the first of the year.

Today I give you a call to make your “mind like water” as you move into your day and week.

It doesn’t matter if it’s March, or November – the same principles work – it’s how we think, being present and planning or reflecting, or allowing.

As we begin this third month of this year – it’s a great time to work on getting our “mind like water” so we can accept and respond to all the forces coming our way.

 Use this! Adore you!

Blessings, Shawna
